‘Alys Resting’

£0.00

Availability: Sold Category:

‘Alys Resting’ by Emma de Polnay is part of her collection of figurative artworks on paper. These works are created in a series of dynamic and intensive life drawing workshops. In these unconventional and energetic sessions, the models will move and dance to pieces of music and then hold mid-motion when asked to stop. Their positions are ‘found’ rather than ‘made’, thus retaining a vitality and dynamism that transfers to the mark making on the paper.

Emma uses a combination of mixed media – inks, wax, coloured pencil, watercolour, graphite, clay and tea

I feel like I’m trying to pour out the way the movement makes me feel onto the paper at speed, before that essence escapes or my reaction becomes too rationalised. I know whether a drawing will work from the first few watery marks I make. I’m also in love with stories of ethereal and mythical beings; Gods, Nymphs and Arch-Angels, so my work is often figurative but sometimes just an abstract explosion of energy. Some of my figures have notably big bottoms and seem very proud of them. I use beautiful watercolour paper, my hands, quills, reed pens, ink and wash, wax, clay, graphite, collage, blingy gold mediums and sometimes a splash of cold tea or beetroot juice.” Emma was born in London and studied art at Wimbledon Art School, going on to do a BA in fine art and an MA in set design for film at Kingston University. Her career has been an eventful journey through over a decade as an art-director for the Film and TV industry, working in-house in creative agencies and now finally focussing on her first love, making fine art. Emma is now happily Brighton based and lives and works from her home in Kemptown. To discuss works by Emma de Polnay please contact deborah@wychwoodart.com, or call 07799 535765 / 01869 338155.
